The activists arrived at the St James' Square offices before dawn and stopped staff from entering by blockading its five entrances with specially designed containers each holding 2 people.
Officers have not yet made any arrests and roads remain open.
The activists have accused BP of "fuelling a climate emergency that threatens millions of lives".
Writing on Twitter, they wrote: "We've met with BP several times but they're still continuing a business which is incompatible with a healthy & prosperous future". They are fuelling a #ClimateEmergency that threatens millions of lives. "BP must clean up or clear out".
"This is a Climate Emergency - BP need to end the search for new oil and gas now and start a rapid switch to 100% renewables".
Paul Morozzo, an activist who is occupying one of the containers, said: "We're shutting down BP's headquarters because business as usual is just not an option". The science is clear: we must stop searching for new oil and gas if we want a livable planet.
City A.M. has asked BP for comment.
