I was in the same position as you and had trouble deciding.
Looking at the course structure helped me decide for my choices so that’s a good place to start. In addition to your list, maybe consider Manchester, they’ve got quite a good reputation. Manchester also offer a tonne of options so you can really study whatever you want. Your list covers many of the “high ranking” physics programmes but maybe you might want to look at Nottingham, UCL or St Andrews.
Finally, the area can make a difference too. Pick a university which you want to go to.
Hope it helped

Good range of unis I think. If you go to Imperial, bear in mind that although they cover further maths content at the start and it's not a required A-level, they still cover it pretty quickly.
Southampton was my insurance for physics, it's got a nice range of different physics degrees you can take. Nice campus, accommodation not too pricey plus with the entry requirements being AAB/AAA it's a good choice for a backup.

If you’re interested in year abroad or placement years that can help you pick too because they’ll vary between each university. It also what you want from uni because each city will have different vibe and experience. So if you’re struggling to decide think maybe pick the uni through its city or ambience. So think about visiting maybe or reading the forums of particular unis to see what they’re like and deciding from there.
I struggled to decide and I basically picked a random 5th choice because I couldn’t choose. I know Someone who put the same uni twice because he couldn’t decide on a 5th choice.
