    Id say Birmingham which is Britians 2nd biggest city. It has every thing your looking for in terms of entertainment and multi-culture and also on Broad Street there are looks of top bars and clubs and the 2 unis there (aston and brum) are also very good.

    Having grown up there, IMO there is something about Liverpool that makes it feel quite small though. Although that could just be a natural feeling after having lived somewhere for a long period of time.
    That is a natural feeling when you know somewhere well. I have visited a couple of cities which are around the same size as Liverpool (like Manchester and Leeds) which at first feel huge because you don't where you are- but as soon as you get to know them they don't.

    Liverpool is about to get a lot bigger in the city centre with the Paradise street project and all that.

    London wins by miles I'm afraid! It's the place to be if you want those things.

    However, there are lots of other places - basically I'd say pick unis that are either in or near the bigger cities - Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Edinburgh (massive for culture!!), Glasgow, Bristol etc. But even some campus universities (like Warwick or York) are great because they're v. close to cities (Warwick has the biggest Arts Centre outside of London and is 15 mins away from Birmingham via train; York 15 mins away from Leeds).

    Calm down children and stop bickering!!
