Each year the clocks are moved forward in the spring as we transition into British Summer Time, before being moved back in the fall to bring us back to Greenwich Mean Time.
The change is approaching for the first time in 2023, as the clocks change this weekend.
Here’s everything you need to know about the clock changes in the UK in 2023.
Why do we change clocks?
The main reason to change the hours is to make the most of the daylight.
The German government introduced the first clock change in 1916 during World War I as a way to save energy – the longer the daylight hours, the less electricity is needed.
Many European governments followed suit, including Britain, and thus BST was born, with the current system in place since 1971.
When will the clocks move forward in 2023?
The clocks always advance at 1 a.m. on the last Sunday in March, which this year falls on Sunday, March 26th.
The reason at that time was to cause limited disruption to schools and businesses.
Unfortunately, this means that the weekend will be shortened by one hour, but in return we will see more daylight in the evenings.
When will the clocks return in 2023?
In the fall, the clocks will turn back on again at 2 a.m. on the last Sunday in October, which this year falls on Sunday, October 29.
This means an extra hour in bed for lounging on a Sunday and will give an extra hour of daylight as the dark nights come.
