There is never enough time. As we rush around our frantic London lives, what could be more of a beautiful gift than one hour of pure unadulterated free time? Yes, it means that summer is long gone, the days will get dark horribly early and it will feel like midnight when you leave work, but for now, rejoice in that extra 60 minutes of time this Sunday. Here are a few ideas of ways to spend it to get you started.
Travel across London
It often takes a good hour to get across London so why not use the time to travel to a far flung corner of the city you would never normally visit? North Londoner’s, get down to the Horniman Museum. Eastenders, take a trip to Notting Hill. West folks, explore the developing delights of Stratford. South Londoner’s, ever been to Alexandra Palace?
What better way to spend an hour than getting a well-deserved relaxing manicure, massage, facial etc.
This could be the first day of the rest of your life. Make the most of it by enriching your mind or body by taking a class.
Reclaim the hour you lost on March 25
Technically you are only really getting back the hour you lost at the start of the summer. What did you miss out on that day? Make up for it now.
Keep on partying for Halloween
As this is the weekend of spooky parties, why not keep the party going for one more hour.
Bake a cake, knit something, do some DIY. If it all goes wrong, you won’t have lost anything.
See the highlights of the British Museum
You can catch most of the good stuff in an hour we reckon.
Just to avoid any confusion: The clocks will go back by one hour at 2am on Sunday 30 October. At 2am, the clocks will return to 1am as British Summer Time ends for another year.
