Train travel with a mask
The cars were quiet and felt very clean. We didn’t have any reserved seats, but four table places to ourselves (which is a good job as Theo didn’t sit still for more than 30 seconds!). There are signs around the wagons asking passengers to wear a mask and not to eat or drink on board. All tickets are now digital on the Northern App to prevent tickets from being passed on. This was another very easy aspect of our trip.
One day in York
I kept my face covered until we left York Station and went to our first stop of the day. We went to check out Thor’s sol branch Tipi bar that emerges in the gardens of the Principal Hotel. It is less than a 3 minute walk from the train station so was an ideal place to stop and get refreshments after our trip.
Sol Ast is very well thought out and adheres to all social distancing guidelines. There is a large tent with open sides, but most of the seating is outdoors on large picnic tables. The tables are very well spaced and there is only table service (to avoid any crowds). I was impressed with how quick the service was and would recommend the Aperol Spritz! Incense wafted through the air and an open fire pit, which made the whole area feel very relaxed and inviting. Reservations are essential for groups of four or more.
After spending some time in Sol Ast, we moved on to the museum gardens. I always take Theo to the museum gardens when we’re at the York Center as it’s the perfect place to let him around for a run. After having a really good sitting at the tipi bar, he was ready to blow off some steam. I spent most of my time exercising on the fly, chasing him around non-stop.
