[city].[domain].[tld] will create separate identities in terms of SEO
[www].[domain].[tld]/[city]/ will strengthen the one domains identity in terms of SEO
For me I try and keep it simple - IF the `subject` of the sub-domains is the same as the main domain, I would create landing pages, else IF the `subject` is different I.e. is not the main focus of the main domain I would use sub-domains.
It is really hard to work this out without knowing about the core of the business and what the separation of domains is suppose to achieve.
unless you're actually serving different content on different domains, just 301 redirect all the secondary ones to the main domain. having duplicate content hurts your rankings and landing pages are annoying and pointless.

Each page be-it landing or domain would need to have specific content related to the city. On some level duplication will not degrade your SEO ranking but the more variances the better. I would keep it simple and expand, get a college student in England the task of discussing city pride and about your services, while keeping the main site national.

yup. you can actually make localized sites on those domains, which'll help put the localized domains on top of the rankings. but if you don't actually localize the content and just 301 redirect all the local domains to the main one, then the main one should be the one that shows up on searches.
