Whilst we take great care to keep you safe, accidents can happen and we are not responsible for such accidents (to the greatest extent permitted by law). It is your responsibility to supervise any children. If you notice that any equipment looks faulty and/or unsafe you must inform The Slate Caverns as soon as possible. We strongly recommend that you take out travel insurance against the risk of accidents and your stay being cut short.
