I chucked a few tomato seeds in a bag of soil and here we are!
Chuffed so far. My first venture into vegetable gardening at my new house.

First planted around May

This was around end June

Very healthy tomatoes . You need to top them, fallow the main stem and cut away the very top few inches. This will stop vertical growth and the plant will instead concentrate it's efforts on production of fruit

Good advice, thankyou.

I'll be topping them both in the next day or so.

Would it be worth it at this point to transplant and move into the ground? Slide over, cut bag open and bed in?

At this point your root system is entangled so I'd try to remove the bag from the soil rather y remove the plants from the bag

Next year, sow the seeds at the beginning of March.
You would have been 2 months on & that's a huge part of the UK tomato-growing season.
You may still get a few tomatoes, if you are fortunate with the weather, but you are a big bit late, unfortunately.

Started this with the kids, two seeds and a bag. I'll be happy with one tomato

I'm surprised how well they are doing actually.

Ill be topping one of them just as experiment to see how they differ come harvest time.
Got nice area all ready for next year though. Will get them down nice and on time.

Thanks for advice
