Well first off I believe London is in the United Kingdom, not France...
But in no particular order I enjoyed the following:
London Eye (by Tower Bridge)
Speakers Corner (Hyde Park)
Buckingham Palace (yes yes touristy but still fun to see the guards change)
The Science and Natural History museums are AWESOME! I saw one of the Apollo moon landers! (by Knightsbridge, near Royal Albert Hall, also worth seeing)
Lords (if you like cricket)
Wembley stadium (frikkin hell that thing is big)
House of commons
Trafalgar and Liecester square (I loved Liecester square, fun place)
China town (just behind Liecester square)
SOHO (what a laugh!)
Paddington station (so cool, I even bought a teddy bear there for my ex-girlfriend )
Canary Wharf (awesome place, so different from the rest of london)
Orpington (Meg lives there Actually, thats the only reason to visit Orpington I am afraid
But you have the right idea. I started at the Royal Albert Hall in the morning and then just walked myself silly till 11 that night. Then did the same the next day. Walked from there down through to Tower Bridge which passes through pretty much everything.
The only thing I still really want to see is Kew gardens.

Currently a rather big building site at the moment... I'd give that one a miss for a few years.
Certainly the Science Museum is a must though.

I personally woud prefer the British Museum: You get Rooms and Rooms full of the worlds greates Antiques (all stolen when the Empire was in its prime ).
They have a great middle east section: Forget the Iraqi excavation sites being destroyed - most of the stuff that is more than just gravel rests secure in the British museum.
Aditionally, they have a lot of old egypt too, including the rosetta stone (but I think the one you can touch in the foyer is a replica, or else large part of it are actually unreadable by now )
Anyway - enjoy your trip into my favorite metropolis!
