Have a read of the gov.uk website for the latest travel advice. There is a risk of terrorist attacks across the country and there are some no-go areas.

There have been recent incidents in Instanbul. If you mean the coastal resorts, then there hasn't been any incidents. The following is quoted from the gov.uk site (my bold):

There is a high threat of terrorist attack globally affecting UK interests and British nationals, including from groups and individuals who view the UK and British nationals as targets. You should remain vigilant at all times. ... Attacks could be indiscriminate including in places visited by foreigners, such as:

public buildings
places of worship
airports
large public gatherings (including major events, public holidays, religious occasions)

Healthwise, according to gov.uk there has been an increase in the incidence of salmonella infections in travellers.
