Is it too late to take out a website? That would probably do
more than anything else to get the search engines to recognize it as a
uk site.

simply put the region = UK in metas - so that search engine will
recognize that you are a UK based website.  Plus you can write a line
in the bottom of the page c copywrite XYZ London, UK Corporate. These
would help you out.
