    wow…ummm Tower of London,Buckingham Palace, London Eye, walk past Big Ben on the way to Westminster Abbey,Trafalgar Square (not necessarily in this order). Use the Tube as much as you can to get around faster find out which tube station is closest to the attractions to save time. If there’s time St.Paul’s Cathedral and if you are going in summer the British Museum is open late so stop by there last on your way back to the hotel (if you are staying in Russell Square)

    wow. you’re packing it in!
    get on a hop on/hop off tour.
    it will give you a list of things and you can choose from that but it will pretty much cover everything major.
    Definitely go a full round before you decide where to hop off – that way at least you can say you’ve seen the tour bridge and big ben (for example) even if you don’t want to get off. and get a few pics.

    If starting in Russell Square, and you don’t mind walking…
    Walk to Oxford Circus, Trafalgar Square, Hungerford Bridge, along the South Bank to London Bridge, and tube back (Northern line to Kings Cross, change to Picadilly Line to Russell Square).
    With stops, that will fill a day, but if you’ve been quick, stay on the second tube train 2 stops extra and get off in Covent Garden. Even with tired legs it’s not far to get back to Russell Square.

    It’d be really easy for me to say go here, go here and go there, do this and do that (because I used to live there and know what I mean) BUT, if it’s your first time there it’s natural to be daunted by the thought of seeing it all in a short amount of time. In that case, I too would suggest the hop-on-hop-off bus. It’s easy, gives you a history lesson along the way and there are plenty “famous” stops along the way.

    Think about what you like to do at home and do it in London – interests, hobbies. If you’re a shopaholic do a market & high street, if you’re into art & photography see the Tate Modern and go somewhere to take pictureque photos. There’s no point wasting your precious time queuing up for an overpriced tourist trap. With the monuments know what you want to go into and what to take a photo of from the outside.
    If you’re more of a go with the flow person, then the bus mentioned above could be the go for you.
