Standard Time

Standard time is the name used for the uniform time obtained by synchronising the clocks within a time zone. In the UK, standard time was introduced in the mid-nineteenth century, when clocks began to be set according to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), the time shown on the clock on the Prime Meridian at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London.

Standard times in other time zones around the world were shown as offsets from GMT until 1961 when Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) was introduced.

When countries use Daylight Savings Time in summer, the standard time is usually shown without taking this into account.
