London is the world’s largest financial centre and a world cultural capital. The city has a diverse range of people and cultures, and more than 300 languages are spoken. Our Central London facility is ideally located in the heart of The West End, for consumers, business people, and physicians. The facility provides easy access to our suburban facility in Wimbledon and to major airports, rail links, and motorways across the UK. At The Research House we help you reach the important markets of the UK. We look forward to welcoming you.

Just a few steps from Selfridges and Oxford Street, our classically designed period building boasts 5 contemporary studios offering a mix of formal and informal room styles. Our in-house chef is one of many features of our service that sets us apart.

UK Value Added Tax
Our facility hire rates are exclusive of UK VAT at the rate of 20%.
I am based in the USA. Does VAT apply to my booking?
Yes. VAT is payable on facility hire by clients based in the UK, USA and all other countries outside the European Union. This is because facility hire in itself is not an exportable service and not classified by the Inland Revenue as market research.
However, VAT is exempt for the USA or other countries outside the European Union if your booking includes research recruitment or research project management services provided by ourselves, at which point our totality of services can be classified as ‘market research’ and therefore considered exportable and exempt.
