Lealholm is on the route of the Esk valley railway line, which runs from Whitby to Middlesbrough, and is served by Lealholm railway station. The Board Inn is the local village inn and the Shepherd's Hall provides meals, teas and a craft shop. There is a famous set of stepping stones in the village which cross the River Esk.
