Those are really high profile ones... There may be a problem getting place there. Out of more reachable ones, I heard North London University is not bad for all things related to media. Though, I may be wrong...

I'm applying to Kings as well. I think Royal Holloway is good for creative writing. This link has ranked all the universities and how good they are for each subject: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/section/0,,716,00.html

hope this helps

You can find university by course, location, etc. there. I'm probably going to apply to Goldsmith's College..part of the University of London. Just need to choose the course now. :p
(Either going to be media & sociology, history & sociology, sociology & politics, sociology & cultural studies or psychology. )

If you apply for psychology, I hope you like statistics...

My mum is course leader at Durham's education department and she says that a lot of pyschology students dislike their courses at Durham because they're so heavily statistics based (albeit quite easy statistics). It's worth thinking about.

It's also worth checking out how much of a focus is placed on biology as well - I met a psychologist when I was up for interview at Oxford, and they said that a lot of the top courses are almost neuroscience in the amount of biology they teach.
