Hi, I’m Brian Robert and I created Peaks and Pints so that I could share with you the places I have discovered since moving to North Wales.

I  was brought up in Bournemouth where I lived for the first 21 years of my life and then more recently I lived in Scarborough for over 10 years.

In 2016 the call of the sea and the desire to live by the coast again drew me to North Wales and Llandudno. Some of my friends questioned my sanity and whether having lived in a big city I would survive but I have to say it is fantastic to be by the sea and then within 30 minutes being able to walk in the mountains. There are some great pubs and restaurants as well!


I enjoy walking, eating out and live music and there are plenty of opportunities to do all of these in North Wales and so far I have only scratched the surface.

By day I am a freelance IT Project Manager and I operate via my company Up the Hill Consulting where  I also have a Project Management blog.
