Information on EU time zones is widely available to the public on a number of websites, including http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com. Within the continent of Europe, EU member states fall within three different time zones—Western European Time (also known as Greenwich Mean Time), Central European Time and Eastern European Time. Further information on these time zones and the countries included in them is available on the website listed above.
