The curious custom of "well dressing" is on display today in Eyam, Holymoorside, Foolow and Wormhill (0845 833 0970; visitpeakdistrict.com/see-and-do; donations welcome). This ancient art of decorating springs and wells with fresh and dried natural materials, such as flowers, berries and leaves, is thought to date back to the Celts and takes place only in Derbyshire and around its borders. Decorations are displayed until the first week of September.

It's the last chance to see a Viking battle at Lindisfarne Priory today (01289 389200; www.english-heritage.org.uk; admission £6.50). "The Vikings Return: Viking Raiders" will aim to recreate the atmosphere of AD793 when Lindisfarne was the scene of the first assaults on the north-east coast of England by these marauders. Rather less combative entertainment is also on offer at this specially reconstructed Viking encampment. See the armour they wore and weapons they used, and there's also a replica of a Viking longship to admire.

A girl approaches from the pack and says conspiratorially: “Recently I have taken control of my life by learning to say ‘no’”. Then the walkers suddenly break out into a sprint, forcing startled museum visitors to duck out of their path or be flattened.
