The time changes at 2am on Sunday, 25 October as clocks should be set back an hour, giving us an extra hour in bed, so don’t miss out on your extra sleep.
How do I remember which direction to change the clocks?
An easy way to remember is using the old phrase: “Spring forward, fall back” (Though this does mean you using the American term for autumn).

The clocks always go forward an hour on the last weekend in March in spring, and go back on the last weekend of October in autumn.
