Invitingly UD.

Meetings at the beach during the off-season never disappoint.

  Neither does The Virden Center. Located in Lewes, The Virden Center is a complete meeting and event venue with full catering, flexible meeting space and overnight lodges. And all of it is surrounded by tranquil wetlands.

A hybrid of business and nature.


The Virden Center is open year-round and guests always leave relaxed and satisfied with their productivity. Being surrounded by nature permeates the vibe – making it easy to refresh your mind during breaks so you can stay focused and achieve your goals. It’s one of the reasons people say they keep coming back.

Choose from multiple meeting spaces, dining in or out (weather permitting), and three guestroom configurations each with a private bath and screened-in porch.
