As the clocks go back - signalling the official start of autumn - Blighty benefits from a whole extra hour on Sunday 27 October. So this weekend forget lying in and get out and embrace that extra hour, with a whole host of hour-long activities that can be enjoyed with friends.
May is a much-loved month in the UK. It brings sunshine (most years), the start of late summer evenings (if the sun shines) and two three-day weekends thanks to the Bank Holiday Mondays at the beginning and end of the month (no matter the weather!).
