Bath, Queen Mary, or Royal Holloway for Economics?

In a bit of a pickle. I am currently on a gap year, and have achieved grades of A*A*AA and A* in EPQ. I have an offer to study BSc Economics at Bath, which is my only offer at the moment. I am also considering Econ&Mgmt at Royal Holloway, and Econ, Mgmt and Finance at QMUL. Which option would be best for overall student life, networking, prestige and job prospects? Would appreciate any advice.
Bath - their placement system there is probably the best in the UK, and its a target Uni for employers.

Higher average admissions grades by enough to make a difference, very strong industry year placements, broad perception among employers that its is a place the top A level students chose to go to.

Whilst Bath may not have hundreds of clubs, there is always something to do every night from Karaoke to Cocktails to a picnic in the park with friends. There are lots of student exeperiences not only on The Student Room but also on our website:
