Winter is coming, which means the clocks will return to GMT for the colder, darker months. Find out what date and time the clocks go back this year.
The weather is getting colder and it is getting dark earlier, which means only one thing: winter is coming.
It can be a bit depressing when the UK goes into hibernation, but there is one thing about this time of year that offers a little silver lining: the clocks are going back.
Yes, there is one day of the year that we get an extra hour of sleep … or celebrate, depending on what you’re up to.
Find out everything you need to know about Time Change and why it goes back and forth.
In the UK, the clocks will be set back from 2 a.m. on Sunday October 31, 2021 and the country will reset to GMT or Greenwich Mean Time. This takes place every year on the last Sunday in October. In this case, we “gain” an hour of sleep, which means that it is not so dark when we wake up.
The clocks will continue to move in the UK on March 27, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. and we will enter BST or UK Daylight Saving Time. This always happens on the last Sunday in March of each year. We « lose » an hour of sleep when this happens, but it means it’s lighter longer while we are awake.
In the UK we change clocks twice a year to maximize hours of sunshine all year round. When the clocks go forward it is officially BST, or British Daylight Saving Time, also known as Daylight Saving Time. If the clocks go back, we are considered back in GMT or Greenwhich Mean Time.
It was created after a campaign by the British builder William Willett, who incidentally is the great-great-grandfather of Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. The move was finally introduced in 1916, a year after Willet’s death.
Funnily, Willet is believed to have suggested this so that he could play golf longer and have more free time. However, the benefits of DST became apparent as a way to save energy, which was essential during World War I when coal was scarce.
