BST operates from the last Sunday in March until the last Sunday in October

British Summer Time Rule

In the UK, the Daylight Saving Period (DST) period is is known as British Summer Time or BST for short, which has a fascinating history .

When BST starts, the UK moves its clocks forward from Greenwich Mean Time by one hour, so BST= GMT+1.

In 2017, the last Sunday in March was on 26 March . This was the day when Daylight Saving Time (DST) started again.

The UK is the short name for 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.
