At the time of writing, there is no advice suggesting that Brits should avoid travelling there - the FCO doesn't advise against travel there following the tragedy.

Its travel advice including information for Brits who are already in Greece, is: "On 23 and 24 July, there have been wildfires in a number of areas in southern Greece, including close to Athens; they have been confined to limited areas, but within those the impact has been high, with significant loss of life; most visits to Greece, including to Athens, are unaffected; you should keep up to date with local media reports and follow the advice of the Greek authorities in affected areas; if you've been affected by the wildfires and need consular assistance, you can call the British Embassy in Athens on +30 210 7272 600; if you're in the UK and worried about a British national in Greece, call the FCO on 020 7008 1500. …
