Slowing getting back into riding after a very long break

Also hello! I'm new to this forum.

Anyway I'll soon be selling my old, sadly barely used, full sus bike and will replace it with something in the £600-£1000 range that I will take on a few trips a year about the UK. Won't be doing the downhill any more, too much money in broken bits, but i'll certainly be injuring myself on a few aggressive trails.

It's been so long since I even looked at any bike related articles or magazines that wheels over 26" being commonplace was actually quite a shock! Done a little research and they look like a damned good idea for climbing and riding all day, also might be better suited for me at 6'2" than 26". Anyone around the same height had much experience with 27.5" or 29ers? Also could you recommend some bikes in the above price range, it's a big range because, if a great can be had for less than £1000 then I'll be happy to save the money.

Apologies for the rather wide-open nature of the questions, I'm just trying to get to grips with it all again.
