For which sights in London should we get tickets in advance?

We will have 2 1/2 days and 3 nights in London in mid May of this year. Wondering for which sights/places advance tickets are a must? Can most be purchased on line?

If you hope to see a specific play, it would be prudent to buy the tickets in advance. Several I wanted to see were sold out by the time I checked for tickets last September.

Yes. Churchill War Rooms, Tower of London and as advised if there is a particular play that is a must see best to book in advance.

Churchill War Rooms, Harry Potter studios (book weeks or months ahead), major theatres (book weeks or months ahead), high profile temporary exhibitions at museums and art galleries.

I’d book in advance for the Houses of Parliament if that’s of interest. You’ll likely be able to buy tickets the same day but certain time slots might be sold out.
