Ellesmere Port railway station is located in the town of Ellesmere Portmarker, Cheshiremarker, Englandmarker. It is one of the termini of the Wirral Line of the Merseyrail network, and is also served by Northern Rail trains to Helsbymarker and Warrington Bank Quaymarker.

The ticket office is staffed by Merseyrail Monday to Friday between 06:05 and 14:00. There has been a recent experiment on Saturdays to see whether the station can justify being opened at the weekend. At other times, passengers can purchase tickets from the Ticket Vending Machine located on the platform. This machine can issue tickets to any destination on the rail network. Passengers failing to purchase a ticket will be liable for a Penalty Fare if they board a Merseyrail service without obtaining a valid ticket.

All Merseyrail services use platform 1, whilst the infrequent services eastwards to Helsby & Warrington use platform 2.
