When do the clocks go forward in 2022?

BRITISH summertime is marked by the changing of the clocks in March, as a sign that warmer weather is right around the corner.

But, each year the exact date changes. So when do the clocks change to BST?

When do the clocks go forward in 2022?

Our clocks go forward every year in the UK on the last Sunday in March.

This means that the clocks will change on 29 March 2022 by going forward one hour at 1am marking the start of British Summer Time (BST).

During BST, Brits get more evening daylight and a little less in the mornings which is known as Daylight Saving Time.

This means that Brits may be a little groggy on March 30, as we lose an hour sleep when the clocks change in spring.

And when the clocks go back later in the year, we enter Greenwich Mean Time or GMT.

The tradition of changing clock times is observed twice a year in the UK.

Will my phone update automatically when clocks go forward?

Mostly yes.

For those who use an iPhone, your clocks should reflect the change in time if you have your 'date and time' settings to change automatically.

So, iPhone users shouldn't need to worry about missing their alarms on Monday 30 March.

For all other smartphones, its down to the network operators to change the time, again if you have the automatic updates already set up.

However, if you're still using a regular keypad mobile it's worth checking your settings for your date and time manually.

When in doubt, you should always check your settings, or change the time yourself by going into your phones 'date and time' settings.

When will the clocks go back in 2022?

It's a little while away before the clocks change back in 2022.

As with the change in time for BST, the clocks go back on the last Sunday of the month.

This year, they will refer back an hour on October 25, 2022.

This means that Brits will be able to regain that lost hour of sleep from March, but it also means darker mornings and evenings, as winter is just around the corner.

There's even a handy phrase to remember which helps avoid confusion – "spring forwards, fall back".
