What is the best day to go to Hobbiton
If you wanna have the Hobbiton to yourself when buying your ticket, here is the bad news: All days are pretty well visited, days around holidays might be extra busy and we would try to avoid those. If you primary are looking forward to taking pictures for Instagram, go on a cloudy but not rainy day, you will have a nice even natural lighting.
