London from the inside Monday 5th - Sunday 11th June 2017
The Romans called June ‘Junius’, thought to either be named after Juno, the God of marriage, or ‘juniores’ being young (and May - ‘maiores -’ being old). No month starts with the same day of the week as June in any year. It’s National Smile Month in the UK, so remember - better to be the one that smiled first than the one that didn’t smile back!
