What to do about wonky floors?

I have just purchased a ~100yr old terraced house. The ground floor is concrete and not suspended, but upstairs is obviously not concrete! The floors are somewhat wonky in most rooms. What options do i have for levelling it, and would it be a worthwhile exercise, or is it potentially just opening myself up for lots of expense and pain?

If possible i'd like to rid myself of carpet in a couple of the rooms (especially my office), and suspect even laminate wood flooring can't take much variation in the level of the floor?

If you want laminate then ply over the top to get a flat surface, for carpet hardboard is usually enough.
