Wanstead vs Woodford vs Buckhurst Hill

Hi Mums, after some advice about our next move... we currently live in central east London (near Liverpool st) and want to move out so we can finally get more space for us and the little one. The area around Wanstead seemed perfect - really nice village feel, great commute to my Holborn job, inbetween my parents and the husband's - BUT it's proving pretty expensive. Should we look out further afield to Woodford? I hear it has great schools? (Son is 10 months).. what about Buckhurst Hill? We want somewhere that has a nice buzz about it and a decent high st (we're used to being in the centre of things!) but obviously needs to be good for families and commuting. I know this will get a few eye rolls but we love living in London and not sure if we're totally ready for proper suburbia, anyone else relate?!?!

THANKS FOR ANY ADVICE!

I only know Wanstead but it's basically where ex hipsters go to become parents

I think Woodford if you like Wanstead, similar. Good schools.
