Group D - England, Croatia, Czech Republic, and Scotland

 

You can almost feel the tension in the air. Whether you’re lucky enough to catch a game at one of the stadiums, or perhaps you’ve ventured down to your local open-air screening of one of the matches, the 2021 Euros is heating up this summer.

Group D is one to watch. With local favourites England and Scotland, there will undoubtedly be many fans tuning in. Football aside, Group D has us wondering where we'll head to on our next holiday. And that’s the basis of Newmarket Holidays’ Alternative Euros - it’s not about who can kick the ball but who can offer the holiday of your dreams.

Let’s take a look at the countries we have competing in Group D:

  • England
  • Croatia
  • Czech Republic
  • Scotland

 

How do these travel destinations compare?

 

If it’s a city break or weekender you’re looking for, you can’t look past Prague, the ‘city of a thousand spires’. The Czech Republic’s capital city is home to a UNESCO-listed Old Town, a striking range of Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance architecture, and the romantic Charles Bridge. Certainly, Croatia offers similar spoils, with the historic walled city of Dubrovnik featuring an enthralling, medieval old town, ancient city walls, and the Baroque St Blaise’s Church. 

Now to our local loves. Where do we begin with England? It’s home to London, one of the most dynamic, diverse, and happening cities in the world, an idyllic, storybook-perfect Lake District, a rugged Jurassic Coast, and an impressive league of castles. Of course, if we’re talking about castles, there’s Scotland. The country is one of the most naturally beautiful landscapes in the world, with glittering lochs, mossy glens, enchanting forests, white-sand beaches, and remote isles. The winner of Group D might just be our toughest call yet!

 

The winner is…

 

Scotland! It’s summer and it's the beaches we’re after. It pays to remember that Scotland's treasures aren't limited to the mainland. Around 800 islands lie off its coast, some of which have the most pristine white sand beaches in the world. Don’t believe us? Head to the Outer Hebrides to find out. 

Our holiday pick is the Isle of Harris, which boasts dramatic peaks, rugged coastline, and beach paradise. The bays of this region are perfect for exploring, walking, swimming, and sunset-gazing. Unlike the beaches you might be accustomed to, these Hebridean locations are typically deserted, leaving only a few Highland coos wandering the grasslands, sand, and sometimes into the water for a splash.

Luskentyre is one of the most beautiful beaches on the Isle of Harris. Chosen as one of the UK’s best beaches in the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards, the beach features a vastness of white sand and iridescent green-blue water.

 

Suggested tour: Hebridean Island Adventure
