Itinerary Critique

Okay, I believe I have finally arrived at a rough plan for our first adventure overseas. I have planned this schedule with my 11 year old daughter in mind. Please let me know if I am missing something, if times are too tight or if I planned something in the wrong area. Also, any kid-friendly ideas are welcome as well.
Finally, would it be smarter to purchase oyster or travel card. We will be in london for four days, away, and then back for three days.
Day One
Hotel at 3:00 by Earl's Court Metro
London Eye

Stonehenge with above tour group
Theatre or cinema or suggested activity
DAy Three
Tower of London (early so we get in), Big Bus Tour to see sights, London Bridge Experience, Beatles Tour (my daughter loves them), evening:not sure any suggestions? I would also love to see the changing of the guards. Can this be worked in on this day?
Day Four
Big Bus Tour to British Museum/ British Library

You didn't say when you are traveling and neither do you say where you will be spending those days away from London but if it is not at the seaside and if the weather is fine, I vote you spend your 2nd day 3 in Brighton. The Pier has arcades and rides and food you can even get mother/daughter temporary tatoos, and the people watching is 1st class. Plus there is always the Royal Pavillion. Also I hope you mean the Tower Bridge Experience and are you at all interested in having afternoon tea someplace.
