Peak season vs low season

Peak season: June to August
Off-season: January to March, November to December

During the peak season, from June to August, Stonehenge has more visitors than usual. For a quieter experience, visit Stonehenge between March to June and September to November. These are not quite the peak or off-season, but just right in terms of weather and crowding.

Weekday vs weekend

The best days to visit Stonehenge are on weekdays as the landmark is most crowded on the weekend. The best time of day to visit would be as soon as it opens at 9:30am so that you can avoid crowds and explore the sprawling landscape. If you are visiting on a weekend, visit before 11am or after 2pm.
