Westminster Abbey, Perliment and Big ben are in the same general area. You can walk there from Trafalgar square and stop by the Backingham (sp?) palace to see chaning of guard.
You have to take a metro (aka "tube") to Tower or London and Tower Brigde.

I suggest you get a travel guide and a map which will help with your planning.

Check www.thetube.com

Click on The Knowledge on the right hand side of the screen. Click on Major Attractions on the left hand side and this will bring up all sorts of places and the nearest tube station to them.

I second looking at a guide book to get a sense of the layout of the city.

All of the places you list are in "central" London. The farthest west is Kensington Palace - the farthest east are the Tower/Tower Bridge. These would require a 15 to 20 minute tube ride from the others.

All of the rest are quite near each other - actually within walking distance. Westminster Abbey, Parliament/Big Ben, the Eye, Downing St, Trafalgar Sq. and Horse Guards and Westminster Pier (for a boat ride) are all just a few blocks or less apart. Picadilly Circus is near Trafalgar Sq but farther from the others.

If you will go to the web-site
www.visitbritain.com/uk/new/worldoffice.htm
you will find the addresses and phone numbers of the British Tourist Authority in almost every major country.

If you phone or write them and tell them you want information on London, and the dates you will be there,they will send you a map of London, and all kinds of additional booklets and information. With this material in hand, practically every question you might have on London will be answered.

Correction on the e-mail address for London information. It should be:

www.visitbritain.com/uk/news/worldoffice.htm.

You'll notice in the correction that there is no slash between "world" and "office"

Sorry about that
