“Thank you so much for making the Easter holidays so fun for my children! My two older boys typically really don’t enjoy camps but they adored every moment at Tails & Beau, running out of the house every morning with big smiles on their faces! It’s completely different from the other holiday camps, with a lot more attention to detail and ever-changing fun activities. Will definitely be signing up again for the next holiday!”


“I originally signed my daughter and son up for one day in the Easter break. After they came home they were absolutely set to return the next day, which led to a third day, forth day and then the week. I can honestly say that my children had the best time at Tails & Beau and it is by far the best experience we have had with a holiday camp in London.”


“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 permanent 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.”


“I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful time my daughter had with you last week. She was tripping over her words with excitement when telling me about her day when we got in the car. You were so amazing accommodating her dietary bits and instilled immediate calm in me that you would take such good care of her. I have no doubt that you will be seeing her again! Thank you so so much.”


“Thank you for the most amazing 4 days at T&B, our three had the BEST time. Thank you for all your imagination and fun and the happiness that you bring to the school holidays.”


“We wanted to say the hugest thank you for an amazing, happy, action packed week. As always our three children had the best fun and thank you for being so flexible and for being so vigilant and on it with our son’s nut allergy. You guys set the bar really high, this is very hard for us parents to live up to for the rest of the holidays!”


“From the moment of entering Tails & Beau my daughter was enthralled: games and toys laid out and a welcoming atmosphere. We have tried a few holiday camps in Chelsea and Fulham and nothing has compared, there is a real sense of joy and adventure. The thought and imagination put into the sessions is wonderful and I recommend it wholeheartedly to any mum with a child nervous about camps and making friends.”
