Viewing Facilities Hire

Hiring our research suites in Leeds

Research Helper offer three contemporary research suites available in central Leeds, perfect for a range of market research methodologies:

  • focus groups
  • IDIs
  • usability or UX research
  • gaming research or TV ad testing
  • workshops or external meetings

Located in Holbeck Urban Village media hub, we’re just 5-10 minutes walk from the city centre and Leeds train station, with plentiful free car parking for both participants and observers.

Our purpose-built, state-of-the-art studios were built in 2014, and are fitted with modern, stylish furniture, with flexible layouts to suit your research.  We’ve invested heavily in areas such as daylight-emulating flooded ceiling lighting to reduce glare on screens and research stimulus, and broadcast-quality AV equipment to ensure your recordings are fit-for-purpose. Our facility is DDA compliant, and we regularly host accessibility research.
