Channel Tunnel Travel Tips


Escape the crowds:  The Best Places to Visit in Europe

The great thing about Europe is how easy you can get from one place to another and how much there is to see and do. Even the most popular and top European destinations have hidden gems and new exciting places to discover, so every visit is a new experience.


We have rounded up some destinations in Europe to escape the crowds!

  1. Dubrovnik, Croatia

Dubrovnik is one of the most well-preserved medieval cities in Croatia and is a quite quiet considering its heightened popularity since Game of Thrones used the city as a filming location. Relax on one of Dubrovnik’s many stunning beaches or explore the hidden depths of the Old Town. Dubrovnik has it all for anyone wanting to get away from the busy crowds of the usual European getaways.


  1. Lyon, France

When you think of France you immediately think of Paris but there are many more places to discover especially if you don’t want to be caught up in the busy Parisian streets. Set your sights on Lyon which is known for its gastronomy meaning great restaurants and even better food (ticks the boxes already). Not only that but Lyon is immersed in French culture and rich history. A trip to Lyon is a trip to the REAL France!
