Except London (too expensive!!)
Better to go to a uni that is integrated into the city rather than a campus uni like Keele or Lancaster. You can have a great social life in a campus-based uni but if you go to a city like Manchester or Leeds you will find there are several unis in the same city - for example in Leeds there is Leeds University, Leeds Beckett, Leeds Arts University, Leeds Trinity University, That means there will be a huge student social scene.

It really depends what else you want
The more obvious ones are:
Leeds, Newcastle, Bristol, Nottingham, Manchester, Southampton, Birmingham, Liverpool, Sheffield, Cardiff

The thing is imo you can have a great time at any uni, if you want to be 'social' you'll find the events. If you dont want to go out then being in Leeds wont transform you into a party animal...

So id keep that in mind as their are plenty of other great unis which have ample social opportunities.

Just be aware that some clubs may be shut permanantly due to losing so much money on covid 19 that they could not recover, so if you bear that in mind.

Depends on what you mean by social. If you mean clubs and partying I'd recommend Portsmouth because all the clubs are literally walking distance from the halls and most housing. You probably will have no time for that in second and third year though! Portsmouth also has loads of great societies and regular social events in the union and within every department so there are tons of opportunities to meet people.

London is actually manageable on a student budget if you know how to be savvy.

Glasgow is an amazing city. It's very friendly and student-friendly. With Glasgow uni, Strathclyde, Caledonian uni and Glasgow City College there is great student life.
