    independently

    When you visit Europe, do Britain independently and not along with other European countries.

    Does the word 'Independently' fits here as a synonym for separately?

    Initially, I couldn't make sense of your sentences until I realised it was a suggestion about how to to "do Britain" (visit Britain)! I would use "separately" there. When we travel "independently", it usually means that we make our own flight/transport and accommodation arrangements rather than booking a package organised by someone else. I don't think the suggestion is to make totally different types of travel plans. I assume the suggestion is to consider Continental Europe as one trip, but to consider a trip to the UK as a separate trip.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
