Do the clocks go back this weekend and when is the time change in the UK

Setting your clocks back in the autumn in the UK may be a hassle or slightly confusing, but at least it means we get an extra hour in bed.

As the mornings have been getting considerably darker and the nights longer, it’s time for the clock to change and as it is now autumn, that means they will be going back. Although this does buy us one extra hour of sleep, it also means that we’re losing even more precious daylight hours and winter is creeping ever closer. So when does Daylight saving time end and when are the clocks going back? Do the clocks go back this weekend and when? Daylight saving time ends on Sunday, October 27 this year in 2019, which means that the clocks are going back this weekend. The time changes and the clocks go back at 2 am Greenwich Mean Time on October 27, meaning that 2 am will then become 1 am GMT instead and sunrise and sunset will subsequently be one hour earlier from Sunday.

This will make it slightly lighter in the mornings and evenings for a while. Most devices will adjust automatically (like your phone does for time zone changes) for daylight saving time, so when you wake up on Sunday morning your phone should already show the correct time. After this weekend, the clocks won’t change again until Sunday, March 29 next year, in 2020.

This does affect 247 Cars, Customers, when they book a taxi on Saturday night into Saturday morning.  247 Cars operate a simple rule by asking riders sticking to the original booking time unless passengers tell us otherwise.

247 Cars will be covering all areas this weekend including Birmingham, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton.

Have a safe weekend!
