    Slightly biased, but Bath is a nice city and the campus is beautiful. It's the only university outside of London I've seen though.

    it depends exactly what you want. For historical places try Durham or Bath
    For a very green campus try Exeter
    For a stunning university next to the sea and in parkland try Swansea.
    For big city try UCL, Bristol Birmingham or Cardiff
