Well, I can tell you that Sheffield is a nice city! :)

It's very hard to advise about which city you might prefer I'm afraid.

I agree with @reenie that Sheffield is a nice city. In fact, the University of Sheffield may just be the perfect place for you if you are seeking a masters in Architecture. This world famous university is well-known for its MBA, Architecture and Business curriculum. A member of the very elite Russell Group, the University of Sheffield is one of the original red brick universities. Its population of more than 25,000 students include over 3,700 students, which include Indians. Aside from the great education you'll get at the University of Sheffield, you'll also get to explore beautiful architectural structrures dotting the city, such as the Mappin Art Gallery, Sheffield City Hall and the Sheffield Winter Garden. Best of all, you'll have the distinction of studying in a prestigious university which received the "Great Place" Award from the Royal Institute of British Architects' Academy of Urbanism in 2007. I hope this information helps. :-)

UCL is the highest overall in the UK rankings, however, Sheffield is the highest of those for Civil Engineering.

Take a look at this for overall rankings:


and this for Civil Engineering (the nearest I can find to Architecture):
