Have you tried looking at The Complete University Guide for rankings per subject?

Have a look at the official 2021 veterinary medicine applicants thread. It's not a question of which is better, but which is better for you, and this thread is full of loads of useful information. ( There is a 2022 thread as well but it's not fully up and running yet and so less complete)
Where you can apply to depends on your GCSE grades, your A level subjects as well as the amount of work experience carried out, so check all the schools web sites.
Have fun!

In all honesty, there isn’t a universal “best vet school”. Rankings don’t matter to employers, they just want to see that you’ve got a vet degree and that you fit the team. There are also currently only 10 vet schools (with a new one opening soon) so the rankings change around a lot every year.

What really matters is which vet school is the best for you. They differ in their campus set up, teaching styles, cities etc etc etc… what might be the best vet school for one person might not be the best for another. For example, Nottingham has a very rural campus and teaches clinical skills earlier, Liverpool is a great city for student life, Cambridge has an academic focus, it’s about what you think would make you a better vet.

Take a look at the university requirements for both grades and work experience to see which ones you can apply to (if you don’t meet them then you will almost certainly be rejected) and then do your own research and decide which ones are best for you. Don’t get too set on a particular vet school, it’s not really a case of which one is your favourite, it’s about where you get an offer from.

For veterinary wherever you get an offer is the best option.

IF you get multiple offers you can think about preferences then, at which point you’ll have likely explored your options thoroughly just going through the application & interview processes.

Veterinary medicine/science courses all lead to the same end result - some like Nottingham have far more letters behind their name than say Liverpool/Bristol's BVSc but they all lead to you being able to practice as a veterinary surgeon within the UK. So wherever you get an offer from is the best vet school.
