3 days in London - Help on itinerary

We = couple in late 20s. very open for a hectic schedule and early starts

We got 3 days to see London. We get in London Friday noon and are there for the weekend and then get back into London the following Friday and come back to US on Sat afternoon.

Here is what we are planning - would love to get feedback from all the knowledgeable folks on the grouping as well as tips around times to visit and such

Friday Day 1: Get out to see city at 4 p.m.

London Eye

Saturday Day 2: Full Day

Buckingham Palace (outside only, no change of guards)

Parliament/Big Ben (outside only)

St. Paul’s Cathedral

Westminster Abbey

Sunday Day 3: Full Day

Tower of London (get there really early - what time does it open?)

London bridge (just take a nice photo)

British Museum

Trafalgar Square

Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus (just for 30 min)

National Gallery

Friday Day 9: Get out to see city at 4 p.m.

Theater: Mouse Trap or Harry Potter 7

Also any suggestions on what to get from London as souvenirs?

Hampshire, England.

"London bridge (just take a nice photo)", I think you mean Tower Bridge, London Bridge is nothing special.

If you only want to see the outside of Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament from the outside, why not do that after your trip on the London Eye? Alternatively, follow the London Eye with visit to Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus. Other ideas might follow if we knew where you will be staying in London.

I'm sure you probably did mean Tower Bridge, but near the south bank of London Bridge there is a nice photo opportunity with the London Bridge griffin statue.

I'd move the National Gallery to Day Two as Day Three is pretty packed, especially if you want to truly explore the British Museum.
