I can get language code, e.g. "1033" for en-US by,

    using (SPSite site = new SPSite(""))
    using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb())
        // OUT put is     1033

But I want to know it's culture e.g. I want to know if its en-GB or en-US.

Use this code instead,

using (SPSite site = new SPSite(""))
using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb())
    CultureInfo info = new CultureInfo((int)web.Language);
