I was considering doing Geology or History and then doing a GDL, however, I've been looking at some post-graduate law courses and they look quite interesting. Should I just do a LLB + LLM or Bsc + GDL + LLM? Also, do any 'top' universities offer Law + an additional subject as an LLM? Can't seem to find many.

The SQE is going to take over the GDL and SQE. J-SP follows these things more closely than I, but the "new" version of the GDL under the SQE will not automatically confer an academic qualification on you. It is only called a "prep course", of whatever formality you require and design for yourself. So there is a question of how you prove to law schools that you have a law qualification equivalent to the LLB, even you don't get a qualification at the end of it. There will be a way; it just isn't clear at the moment what it will be.
Whether you wanna do LLB + LLM or BS + GDL (equiv.) + LLM is up to you. LLMs. It depends. I know people at UCL who have pretty much a finance master's under the guise of an LLM in corporate finance. My master's has a lot of economics, and you can choose to take the econ/political-intensive modules and essays within those modules or stick to hard cold law. There is a lot flexibility when it comes to master's.
