Time Difference Between the U.K. and New York
The time difference between the U.K. and New York is 5 hours. The United Kingdom is ahead of New York. This means that when it is midnight in New York, it is already 05:00 in the UK.
Summer and winter time in New York
When travelling to New York in the spring or autumn time, don’t forget to pay attention to daylight savings time or summer and wintertime as many call it. If you have difficulty remembering how the clock is set, Americans have a saying that helps: “spring forward, fall back”.
New York officially changes to summer time earlier than the UK. In 2019 the clocks in New York will move forward on the night of Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th March. So, between 10th and 31st March, there will be a 4 hour time difference instead of the normal 5 hours. In the UK clocks are turned forward one hour on the night of Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st of March. At which point the time difference will return to the normal 5 hours.
Winter time, however, starts earlier in the United Kingdom than it does in New York. In the UK the clocks will be turned back by one hour on the night of Saturday the 26th and Sunday the 27th of October. Consequently, between the 27th of October and the 3rd of November 2019, there will be a time difference of 4 hours instead of the normal 5 hours. In New York, clocks will go back one hour on the night of Saturday the 2nd and Sunday the 3rd of November.
