GMT is not England's time zone (at least not in computer terminology), at least not year round, since GMT does not obey Daylight Savings Time.

    The United Kingdom is in the Western European Time Zone. Western European Standard Time (WET) is Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). See this site for the details.

      The site to which you linked contradicts you. In big bold characters, it says the UK is currently using GMT+1, not GMT.

      The site goes on to say the UK sometimes uses GMT, sometimes uses BST (which is GMT+1).

        Since the text in my post is actually a cut and paste from the page that I linked to then I don't see how it can contradict itself!

        This is a Timezone Map (PDF) which shows the UK and Portugal in the same timezone. This History of Timezones explains the concept better than I can.
