In June summer starts to get into full swing but being outside the school holidays can be a little quieter than July and August. There is still plenty to see and do and fewer queues!

The beginning of June sees invaded by the Roman Army as the city plays host the Eboracum Roman Festival which celebrates the impact the Romans had in York (at one point the whole empire was ruled from here!) with living history, talks on Roman culture and archaeology, military parades, demonstrations of siege weapons and guided walks with expert speakers.

Running from early to mid June York hosts a Festival of Ideas. Each year an inspiring theme is chosen and a wide variety of nationally and internationally acclaimed guests are invited and an amazing range of talks, events and concerts are staged, all based around the year’s theme.

Early June also sees the Food and Drink Taster Festival, over the course of a weekend with food stalls, tasting events and cookery demonstrations from stars of the Yorkshire food scene.
Midway through the month is the exciting June Meeting horse racing fixture at York Racecourse.

Towards the end of the month beautiful Castle Howard, a lovely stately home to the North of York, holds its annual Flower Festival. The stunning house is decked out in floral splendour and there are various events and demonstrations from guest experts from across the north of England.

The month ends with the immensely popular Summer Music Saturday which combines big names in musical entertainment (such as Olly Murs, Paloma Faith and Tom Jones in past years) with the excitement of a day of horse racing at York Racecourse
