Whitehall officials told the BBC the arrests “may have foiled the early stages” of a plan to attack the UK.
The four men, aged 20 and 21, were arrested on suspicion of being involved in the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism.
Met Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe said it was a “quite serious case”.
BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner said Whitehall officials were unable to comment on the nature of the potential plot they say may have been foiled.
Officials said the investigation was in its early stages and interviews and searches were ongoing, our correspondent added.
