For me, id go Bristol, just for the bars, restaurants & nightlife you’ll get their, reputation benefit is minimal between the two. Not to mention Bristol is right at the center of British aerospace (although tbf Bath is just down the road so not exactly far to visit potential employer insight events).

I really like the look of Bristol. I think it ticks all the boxes of a good uni for aero and its got a great night life too. I visited the uni and its a great place. The only thing with imperial is the cost and the work load.

Really? How come?
On paper it might be slightly more prestigious but if you look at the big picture i think Bristol will be a better experience overall like what @mnot said.

Nottingham, i looked at quite a few. I'll PM about research.

Spoiler:
Show
I was mostly looking at Southampton, Nottingham, UCL

UCL was purely about non-engineering CV value, S'oton & Notts both good engineering programs but I ended up choosing Nottingham, I really was on the fence deciding for a long time; but I loved my time in Nottingham and wouldn't change it.

Have you taken a gap year? Just curious about how you've managed so many extracurriculars. I'm taking the IB and just coping.

Congrats, those are fab Universities
