British Summer Time To Start

We swap to British Summer Time on Sunday March 27 at 1am , which means you should put your clock forward an hour.

Thankfully most mobiles phones and radio-controlled clocks will do this automatically, but you’d better check just to make sure.

How do I remember which direction to change the clocks?

To avoid confusion, simply memorise the simple phrase ‘spring forward, fall back’.

The clocks always go forward an hour on the last weekend in March in spring and go back on the final weekend of October in autumn.
