/ Seeking suggestions for first hike destination
Me and my girlfriend have just moved to West Sussex and we are about to start exploring UK's mountains. We're looking for an advice on where to start. We have walked and climbed mostly in Polish High Tatra Mountains. We don't have any special climbing equipment thus we are looking for some challenging but accessible hikes with some easy rock climbs.
We have no knowledge on British geography or mountain ranges, so any advice and some useful links are welcome.
PS. Sorry for my english
North West Scotland!
You are a bit out of the way in Sussex but The Brecon Beacons, Snowdonia, The Lake District and Scotland will fit the bill. Also the Peak district, The Yorkshire Dales, Dartmoor, Exmoor, Cornwall are places worth hiking

Your English is better than some on here and 1000 Times better than my Polish.
In reply to thomaspomfrett: Depending on where you are based, it might be worht contacting local LEA centres to see if you can shadow a few sessions. most are pretty welcome for an extra pair of hands, especially if it's an unruly bunch!
