Food of the gods, print and they're off.

1. A bacon and egg sandwich - cooked by someone else - when you have a hangover.

2. At the Red House, where William Morris of wallpaper fame lived, the ceilings are painted. 'The pattern of holes,' explained the guide, 'helps with the design. It means that you can invite your friends round and get them each to do a section.'

3. Pretending to browse on a market stall but really listening to the Grand National on the trader's radio, and realising that three other people are doing the same thing. And then walking round the rest of the market hearing the traders shouting 'My horse came in! It won!' and 'Mine came nowhere.'
