It depends what he is into.
You can walk from the South Bank ( lots of street artists) to Covent Garden (street acts entertainment) to Picadilly Circus, maybe because of this?

As of 2010, the basement section of Tracadero leading from the London Underground is now an official area for bboys and streetdancers to practice.
Then up to China town in Soho where you can get something to eat (but most of the authentic restaurants have gone). I like wind fried Duck hanging up in the windows- look for where the Chinese eat. Then up to regent street and Oxfird stree to Selfridges food hall ( all walking)

Then another day shopping in Brick Lane with an Indian meal. My kids also like shopping in the lanes in Brighton. Try to find a street festival.

He might like to see the new buildings on the Canary Wharf It's a bit futuristic.

My kids as teenagers really just liked a sense of adventure. I would look through the Time Out of what's on to see if there was anything worth doing (there is Teen section I believe). But then I hand them the money, the A-Z and guides and tell them to get on with it. They have to organize everything, as if they were on their own. I just follow their directions and step in when they really, really can't sort it out.

I did this with my daughter in Rome and Venice, she didn't speak any Italian but had a phrase book and got to grips with it very quickly!

My daughter can spend hours in the British Museum and Globe Theatre, The Tower they also like Hampton Court. But honestly what they most enjoy is exploring with an A-Z and tube map in their hands, pretending that they are Londoners.

Have a really different London experience: stay in your room and cry.
