Quoting claireh

To see all of those things in one late afternoon / evening is definitely pushing it. Big Ben is literally just over the river from Waterloo, so that won't be a problem. London Eye is right near Waterloo too, but the queues tend to be long, so not good if pushed for time. Last time I went on the eye, we went at 10pm and got straight on though, so if you really want to have a look, go later. Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park and Trafalgar Sq are fairly near each other so could be done in a few hours. Tower of London is a bit out of the way and not much to see unless you go in (although Tower Bridge is nice).

Nicest way to travel is walking or bus, but easier to get lost!! Tube is easy and gets you to the door step of each place. Other modes of transport aren't applicable in central London.

Thanks alot this helps me greatly:)

Although I don't always like to be the typical tourist, I really did enjoy the hop-on hop-off tourist buses in London. You don't really get outside of the city center, but the guides are very friendly, you get to look at things as you travel from sight to sight (instead of emerging from a tube station like a gopher all discombobulated), and you get running commentary and pass things you may not have known you wanted to see. The buses will serve all of the places on your list, but it's true thay might take a little longer to get from place to place due to frequent stops and traffic, but I found that after a day on the bus I was much better able to find my own way along the winding streets of London AND understand where I was for the most part when I exited a tube station.
