Tails & Beau is an exceptional holiday camp run during the school holidays for children aged 5-11. Located in Chelsea in the heart of London, Tails & Beau provides a safe and exciting environment where children are socially, emotionally and physically stimulated.

At Tails & Beau, activities range from the sublime to the extraordinary! The multi activity timetable keeps the children engaged from start to finish. We have fabulous visiting guests each week ranging from authors, hairdressers, artists, sports instructors, yoga teachers and more! As a childcare service we go above and beyond the norm, nurturing your child and teaching life skills outside of the classroom and home.

Co-founders Tally Hackett and Ruth Bridges met in 2013 whilst working at Francis Holland SW1. They share the same ethos and principles in their ambition to provide the best possible experiences and inspiration for children in their care. Together they strive to build each child’s confidence and competence; the foundation of positive self-esteem.

“Thank you again for such a wonderful camp experience. My children, who generally don’t like camps, absolutely love their days at Tails & Beau! The activities are top notch and very creative. I’ve known the founders for years and I trust them with my children blindly. It’s honestly the best possible way to invest in your children over the holiday as, whether is yoga, cooking, arranging flowers or making crafts, they’re always learning something new. My children will keep on going back and I know every moment will be worth it. Best money I’ve spent on London-based holidays!”

“Both our son (5) and daughter (7) loved their time with Tails & Beau – so many different activities which engaged them, and so many new friends made – this is likely to become a school-holiday fixture for us!”


“It was fantastic to drop my daughter off in the morning without any tears. She ABSOLUTELY loved her time at Tails and Beau. The activities are exceptional for a holiday type camp, and I will be definitely looking into sending her in future”


“My son had a great time on Tails and Beau’s Christmas holiday camp. He was excited to go there every day and enjoyed the varied activities including arts and crafts, games, yoga, meditation and mindfulness. Mummy even got a Christmas card and homemade wreath out of it!”


“I have managed to change our flights, so Amelia will be able to come again tomorrow! I’d say that was meant to be… she will be hotfooting to you again in the morning. She will be so happy when she wakes up!”


“Tails & Beau is something really special, Tally & Ruth are wonderful and both my son and daughter came home each day full of beans and happy. They are big on kindness, big tick from me, and each day is jam packed with the most amazing range of activities.”
