Have you considered a bridge type DSLR (or "superzoom)? Argos have a Sale on at the moment and you can pick a Fuji s4300 (14Mp and 26x Zoom lens and 720p video recording amongst other features) up for 99.

Whilst such cameras do not provide the absolute image quality of a full DLSR they do offer considerably more capability and flexibility than a standard "point and shoot" compact camera and are ideal starter cameras in my opinon. After a while you could look to trade up as you get more practised and with a clearer idea of the specification level and features important to you.

I have just purchased a similar camera, but from the next model range up with a 50x zoom lens that also has a macro and wide angle capability built in and the pictures it produces (for the cost of the camera / lens) are astonishing. If I get the time and can figure it out I'll add some pics to the gallery here.

+1 to a bridge camera. They can also hold their prices well if you do decide to move on to a full D-SLR.

The Fuji S5600 was a popular choice a few years back.

I've had a couple of Fuji bridge cameras and am currently with the Fuji Finepix S2980

Nice and easy to use with most of the features that come with DSLR cameras but at a fraction of the price.

I paid 129.99 from Argos about 6 months ago for it, but its available brand new for around 90

In fact Currys, Tesco Direct & Amazon all have it for Sale on thier websites for 89

With the bridge cameras, can you adjust shutter speed and does it Have bulb mode?

You would need to check the individual camera specs for the make / model you are considering. Most offer manual shutter / aperture control / focus control, fewer - but I think that there are some, offer a full "bulb" option - others do not provide bulb as such but long(ish) shutter speeds which would be suitable for some aspects of night photography.

Incidentally, I found this site useful for comparing cameras once I narrowed down my requirements and possibles.

the majority, if not all, bridge cameras have the ability to adjust the shutter speed

dont buy a bridge, you're going to want a dslr in the not so distant future so i'd recommend buying one now, those fuji cameras are all the same, ive had 3 of them, you buy one and a new model will come out a month later, steer clear and get a second hand dslr.
