The only advice I can give is visit your local bike shop who will be able to advise you what type will best suit you. I went to buy a specific bike I had my heart set on 18 months ago, but when in the shop my size, shape, reach etc meant that I would be uncomfortable riding it. He took my measurements and then advised me on what would then suit me and then made sure the bike was set up for me before I took it home. I can't recommend enough that this way to buy you bike will help in your enjoyment of cycling.

If you are looking for an all round bike then I would suggest a cheap hardtail mountainbike under £500.  You can find a few here http://twowheelsbetter.cc/best-of/best-2016-mountain-bikes-under-500-2/.  They are good for commuting, offroading and some doubletrack, towpath and bridleway riding.  If you love that then move up to something more roady and sporty.
