At 2am tonight Sunday, 31st October the time goes back one hour, marking the end of British Summer Time (BST).

Most electronic devices such as phones and computers will automatically change. As well as watches, home clocks, most car clocks times will need to be changed manually. Users of dashcams may find it worth checking these as well.

In the UK the clocks go forward 1 hour at 1am on the last Sunday in March, and back 1 hour at 2am on the last Sunday in October.

The period when the clocks are 1 hour ahead is called British Summer Time (BST). There’s more daylight in the evenings and less in the mornings (sometimes called Daylight Saving Time).

When the clocks go back, the UK is on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

One simple way to remember how the clocks change is the phrase "Spring forward, Fall (Autumn) back".

Most European countries change at the same time as the UK whilst in the USA the clocks won't go back until a week later on November 7th.
