Route 563 of the National Cycle Network connects the Connah's Quay/Chester Railway Path near Garden City to Ellesmere Port.

The route runs between where it meets Connah's Quay and Chester Railway Path on Route 5 near Garden City and Little Stanney, to the south of Ellesmere Port.

It provides a direct link across the base of the Wirral peninsula for people travelling between North Wales and the Mersey Estuary at Ellesmere Port.

There are plenty of things to see and do along the route. Discover the underwater world at Blue Planet Aquarium with its impressive shark tunnel, colourful coral cave, and see exotic freshwater fish in the Flooded Forest.

Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet is located on the outskirts of Ellesmere Port for all of your shopping and foodie needs.
