Default US taxes, help needed

So I am a dual US/Uk citizen living int he Uk and recently recieved my first US passport. I have my social security number, registered for the Selective Service and now I am left with the confusing world of US taxes. I spoke to the chap from the IRS department in the US embassy who informed me of the forms and years I need to file for. Having looked at the forms I am going to need further help. Anyone know anywhere in the UK that helps with tax return forms?
Cheers

Ask your question on UK Yankee, the US expats in the UK website. They have a subforum just for advice on filing US taxes while overseas.

The US Embassy in London has an IRS Department for US citizens in exactly your position.

Some helpful chap also did a wiki entry on this website about filing your US taxes in London.
