No.

Why are you going to Kings Cross (famous for a couple of good stations and some very unsavory types)?

What is london central?

Hi Shelly,
With so little time, I wouldn't bother with a full day trip to Stonehenge and Bath, nor with Cambridge.
There's plenty to see and do in London. Why King's Cross area? Not much to see there.

Same with Amsterdam; if you are arriving there on day 5, spend day 5, 6 and 7 in Amsterdam.

Or spend the full 7 days in London, and do the daytrips to Bath and Cambridge, if you prefer.

Most of the sites you mention, you just walk past. Buckingham Palace is not open in December. Royal Albert Hall is not very interesting unless you are going to see a performance.

Yes
You need to look at a map of London and the "Tube" map, which makes each of the London sites you have selected easy to get to. So for example Big Ben, Palace of Westminster are very close and just a walk by, while Oxford Street needs you to take an underground train.

Stonehenge (loads of tours go there) can take either half a day, a full day or can be combined with other things to make a full day out, note that in December the daylight hours are short and the weather can be miserable (wet and cool but seldom cold)

I would think it's Tower Bridge that you want to see, not London Bridge (very boring):

In so few days you really don't have time to see London, do 2 day trips and also visit Amsterdam.

(And if going to Amsterdam you seem to have some very odd choices - versus the biggest sights - Anne Frank house, Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum, canal tour, etc) If you want to visit some sort of "factory" better to go to a Delft place or tour a diamond factory - cheese-making is rally boring.
