Back to the opening question - not sure I can answer that - I'm always hungry to explore new ground.

Another vote for Pennine Way. Iíve done it 3 times. Iím lucky enough to be able to dip in as I live in Rochdale and always feel envious when I meet someone walking the whole thing!

One walk in the UK that I haven't done for years is the Rhinog Traverse, Starting by hiding a bike in the woods near Barmouth. Then going up to the campsite in Talsarnau for the night (if it's still there). The first day is up the road to Bryn Hwbach farm, from there climb Moel Ysgyfarnogod and over Clip, Craig Wion, Rhinog Fawr and Fach before camping by Llyn Hywel. The second day is essentially one long ridge walk which takes you right down to Barmouth. Pick up the bike for a gentle ride back to Talsarnau to pick up the car.

Hello,
I haven't walked any of the multi day walking routes in GB. Any multi day walks in Scotland that I have walked were 'made up' with the itinerary set to allow for the higher tops to be visited.
The first multi day walk in Europe, tent rucksack, wee guidebook and all the rest, was in Corsica when we retired.
A rough and ready trail with rough and ready facilities during most of the fifteen days duration. However the mixture of sun, with much interesting terrain and vegetation, staying above 900 metres for the entire journey once 'the getting over the first couple of days from sea level' was got through.
I went back a few years later and walked the length of the GR20 in the opposite direction with a few variations on some of the stages. It was still a magical part of the world.
Definitely a place that I hope to get back to again.

I always wanted to hike the GR20, I bought the book but I've never actually made it.

I'm sure coastal walks are great for many, many people but not for me. I live near the beach and see the sea most days of my life so the idea of walking for days always seeing the water to one side of me is not my idea of fun. Saying that though, I'm fine walking around the edges of lakes. I walked around Bewl Water, just south of Tunbridge Wells a couple of months ago and really enjoyed the experience.
