    Distance shouldn't matter given London's excellent tube service. I would live in Surrey, Snaresbrook, South Woodford, Wanstead, Chigwell, Buckhurst Hill, Loughton.

      I live in South Woodford and can confirm it's a decent commute. Though if you're thinking long term, might want to consider somewhere on the Crossrail line - once it opens up to go through central your commute is gonna be the envy of everyone. Plus house prices will shoot up so if you're buying, not a bad investment.

      The only way you could raise a family in Hampstead on an E4 salary is to buy a tent and sleep on the heath. I doubt that’s what OP had in mind.
