Try the RHS website for your plants, then go to the plant suppliers, most websites have wildlife friendly sections especially the better ones, crocus/mr fothergills/ thompson&morgan/ suttons/marshalls.
A mixture of low growing shrubs and perennials, clematis, grasses, the odd structural plant to give variation.
The plant selections are endless, the links below to the rhs give a list of year round plants to choose from so you can encourage pollinators year round.
A small pond will encourage wildlife.
try the rspb see link.
GW wildlife gardening section for other ideas.
There are buckets of information on the web as well as many books available.
The best advice I can give is to tackle it one step at a time, maybe start with a small pond first (it can be tiny), then go on to plants.
A small plan will help to define any ideas you have.
Best of luck.
