Summer time will end on Sunday 25 October at 1.00am GMT. The Clocks go back giving an extra hour; this means that at 2.00am (British Summer Time) the UK will move to 1.00am GMT.

Notes

1. The 9 th EC Directive on summer time harmonised, for an indefinite period, the dates on which summer time begins and ends across member states as the last Sundays in March and October respectively. Under the Directive, summer time begins and ends at 1.00am GMT in each Member State. Amendments to the Summer Time Act to implement the Directive came into force on 11 March 2002.

2. Time zones are the responsibility of individual Member States and vary across the EU. The UK is not planning to move to Central European Time.
