World Time Starts Here

British Summer Time (BST)

Current time in London

British Summer Time operates from the last Sunday in March until the last Sunday in October .  The UK moves its clocks forward from Greenwich Mean Time by one hour (GMT+1).

In 2017, the last Sunday in March is on 26 March , so this was the day when Daylight Saving Time starts again.

This is known as British Summer Time or BST for short, which has a fascinating history .

The UK is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.  Great Britain consists of England, Wales and Scotland.

Since 1996 all clocks in the European Union, of which the UK is a member state, have changed on same dates and at the same time, 1:00 am GMT.
